Frank Lampard has been sacked as Chelsea manager just after 18 months in charge. Lampard lead Chelsea to 4th position in the league and FA cup final last season. He has also helped Chelsea easily qualify for the second round in pole position, in this season’s champions league.
Chelsea started this season’s premier league campaign on a good note, hoping to fight for the title. Towards the end of 2020, they were top of the premier league. But things have turned sour as Chelsea have lost 5 out of their past 8 matches. They are presently 9th on the table.
Lampard’s sack was confirmed on Monday 25 January by the Chelsea management citing poor run of results.
Even Chelsea’s last 3-1 win over Luton in their lasted FA cup match couldn’t save him
Lampard was appointed on a 3year contract in July 2019. He is disappointed not to have had the time to take the club forward.
However, Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich said Lampard’s status as an important icon of the club remains intact despite his sacking.
Chelsea has appointed former PSG coach: Thomas Tuchel to take over from Lampard. He may be available as early as Chelsea’s home game against Wolves on Wednesday
